Associate Professor Mitch Mokhtari participates in IMF and World Bank panel on global economic governance
On April 17, the Parliamentary Network of the World Bank and the IMF, along with the Society for International Development, held a panel called “Democratizing International Economic Governance” in Washington, DC. Family Science Associate Professor Mitch Mokhtari participated in the panel, which explored whether current economic governance is appropriate in today’s interconnected world. Dr. Mokhtari explored the lack of authority given to global institutions, and argued that global governance is needed in a world facing global trade and large-scale issues such as climate change, pandemics, and human trafficking.
Dr. Mokhtari shared the stage with three other panelists: Dr. Hilton Root, Professor of Public Policy at George Mason University, Dr. Stefano Prato, Executive of Society for International Development, and Dr. Kanishka Senat Balasuriya, World Bank Local Governance and Citizen Engagement Consultant. The panel was facilitated by Dr. Lahcen Haddad, Member of the Governing Council of the Parliamentary Network and Vice President of Society for International Development.
